Embedded systems are everywhereꟷin robots, automobiles, rockets, even appliancesꟷand they continue to proliferate even during a downturn in other sectors of the electronics industry. One market study projects the embedded systems market to reach $173.4 billion over the next decade, growing at a CAGR of 6.8%. The employment prospects are there if one has the right combination of skills.
Embedded systems can provide a rewarding career for those with the proper skills and training.
What are those skills? This video webinar by Binaryupdates, titled “How to Become Embedded Systems Engineerꟷ4 Step Process”ꟷexplains by outlining a four-step process an engineer can follow to become a successful embedded systems design professional. The steps include finding a mentor, investing in the appropriate education, defining a career goal, and working with recruiters. Some of the skills required include learning Embedded C, C++, microcontroller programming, pc board design, and electronics circuit design.
The webinar lasts an hour long and is worth every minute, doling out a lot of useful advice, some drawing from the narrator’s own experiences as a recruiter, trainer, and engineer. It is a must watch if you are interested in the embedded systems field.
